The local community centre hosts the PME Variety Group, Robert Emmet's GAA Club, and Manortown United Football Club.

There is a large badminton centre, the Terenure Badminton Centre, on Whitehall Road.[6] In 2018 and 2019, the bar upstairs in this badminton centre served as the sole Irish venue for the World Quizzing Championship, an individual event that is held simultaneously in many countries around the world for one day each year, normally in June.

The cyclists competing in Stage 1 of the 1998 Tour de France (which started in Ireland that year) passed within 100 yards of the village of Perrystown during this stage (Greentrees Road - Willington Roundabout - Templeville Road) on the way to 1987 Tour de France winner Stephen Roche's hometown of Dundrum in Dublin, and finished back in Dublin City Centre via County Wicklow to complete the stage.
